I need help! I am doing a rustic country wedding in october and I am using mason jars as my centerpieces with candles in them. I was either thinking a votive candle or tealight candle but the tealights only burn for four hours. I want to know what anyone would sugest on putting inside the mason jars with the candles. When the candles burn I don’t want the melted wax to catch the filler on fire. I’ve heard that if you used certian things it can melt it and catch it on fire or if you used a colored candle it will change the color of the filler. Any suggestions?

Do you want to have a filler? I considered doing mason jars and was just going to put the votive in with no filler at all. I think stones might be cute though and go with the rustic thing.

@lisapisa1: Yes I was thinking of doing a filler in them if I could find one that would not catch fire or melt lol I was just looking somewhere and a webiste and they mentioned salt, sand and even kitty litter. I think it just might be tiral and error to see how it works. I may even do little stones. The stones would go with my guest book. For my guest book I am having everyone sign a river rock with a sharpie and then I can display them in a jar/vase in the house insted of getting put up in closet.

Have you bought your candles already? I looked into World Market and they have some that are supposed to last for 6 hours.

How about using a filler of sand? I second the rock idea too. I’ve also heard that if you freezer the candles before hand they will last longer. I’m having floating candles in Mason jars and am thinking of the same problem. But for the floating candles at least we can quick switch them out when they die, and don’t have to worry about the water catching on fire!
